Put your feet up and relax (keeping the southern comfort glass away from your keyboard)

Assuming you have children who could very well have a suprise all lined up. Have they asked you to sign any thing latley.

when my dad retired at 65, he found that his children (all nine of us) could be quite devious.

We even got him a passport with out him knowing..

Mums brithday being before his, one photo on her birthday card (passport size of cause)with all our passport size photo's (he thought that was a nice touch at the time)we filled his application out for him, he even provided his signiture without knowing (complete trust in his children)my sister who worked for the government, mock up some forms that she said that he had to sign for her passport because where she worked (her ascuss was that she was under 21), unknowen to him his passport application was sat at the bottom of the pile, he signed away with out a question.

We had decided that we would send him and mum on a weeks hoilday to Normandy because here played a big part of his army career during his army days in the WWII, he lost a lot of friends here.

We arranged a suprise party, and brought him a getto blaster (for camping purposes) to keep him of the scent.

Believe it or not, 22 years on, he still trusts us to sort all his financal bit and pieces out for him, sadley mum hasn't been with us for serveral years now.

so you may as well face up to it. A few tips to see you through:-

Buy a pair of string-backed driving gloves and a flat hat.

Start making notes of things that you need to remember.

Always remember to 'go' before you leave the house.

Check out the times of the coaches to Chatsworth, Bealieu, and Kew Gardens.

Buy 20 pairs of reading glasses, and scatter them around the house.

Join the regulars in B&Q on a wednesday morning, and pay for your £2.50 packet of screws with a credit card.

You'll soon get used to the idea, and before you know it you'll be 65, and people will start shouting when they talk to you.
